“Who doesn’t want to go play with Calvin Johnson and Matt Stafford and Reggie Bush? It’s a perfect opportunity,” said Ogletree, who caught eight passes for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers’ first four games. With Nate Burleson and Patrick Edwards injured, Ogletree should play Sunday.

No, Green Bay hasn’t returned to the days of Lombardi’s Packers’ Sweep. But the Packers are averaging 5.3 yards per carry, second best in the league.
And after 44 consecutive regular-season games without a 100-yard rusher, they enter Sunday’s game against the Lions with a two-game streak of 100-yard rushers. A year ago, the Packers averaged only 3.9 yards per carry.
Three observations …
• Updating Jared Allen’s stat sheet vs. Steelers left tackle Mike Adams: 2½ sacks, one holding call, one key hurry and one Steelers trade for Cardinals left tackle Levi Brown.
• A confident Panthers QB Cam Newton travels this week to Arizona, where he threw for 422 yards and two TDs in his NFL debut in 2011.
Next up: A Winfield-free (maybe) Metrodome next Sunday.
• Percy Harvin is a great player, but teams that have employed him but were unable to play him because of injuries are 8-0 in their past eight regular-season games.
Two predictions …
• The Lions’ streak of losses in Wisconsin will reach 23 on Sunday.
• The Bears’ 29th-ranked pass rush won’t enjoy facing Drew Brees.
